Riding Into Heaven

Photo taken directly from the blog of Teresa’s family.


I am sorry for my delay in posting an update here on the beautiful princess, Teresa, whom I asked you to pray for.  It is with great sadness for those left behind that I share with you that Teresa has left her shell on this earth and is now living with Jesus. 


Here is what Teresa’s mom wrote shortly after Teresa’s passing:

At 3:23 pm on July 1st, Teresa has ridden her princess bike into Heaven to meet Jesus. She had her ears pierced shortly before her last breath. While we were not there when she took her first breath, God blessed us to be there when she took her last.


While our hearts are deeply saddened and there is much grief when we lose a precious treasure on this earth, it is important to know that EVERY child is WORTH it, even through trials and tribulations, tears and pain, every life is precious in His sight.  LOVE is worth it, always, even when pain is involved.  Teresa’s family loved well.  They risked their hearts for the sake of a former orphan with only half a heart, and while their hearts are crushed right now, their hearts are also more full than ever because of the depth of love God allowed them through the gift of Teresa.


'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
  ~Alfred Lord Tennyson


Because of the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Teresa is able to live eternally in Paradise, free of suffering, pain, and tears.  She has entered her glorious Home knowing the pure, unconditional, self-sacrificing love of a family.  And, through the hope of Jesus Christ, her selfless family will one day be reunited with her again.  Sacrificial love.  Our Father demonstrated it best, and now we love His way because of the way He first loved us.  Teresa’s family is a beautiful example of His love.


Please pray for Teresa’s family and loved ones left behind, those separated from the pure joy of Princess Teresa.  You may leave condolences on their blog HERE.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” ~CS Lewis
